Spennymoor & District Canine Society

Spennymoor & District Canine Society 28th December 2018

Firstly I would like to thank the committee,exhibitors and organisers for a fantastic entry and day judging Great Danes shame about the absentees but weather and time of year plays havoc.

Puppy (6,3 Abs)

1st. McClellans Tayhamblue Show Must Go On With Anadain, Tall 8 month old fawn boy, nice clean head, dark eye, small well shaped triangular ears used well, correct bite, clean neck into shoulders, a little upright in shoulder at present but still growing nicely, firm topline, a little soft in loin, moved well both walking and moving which won him the class. 

2nd Young's Geordieone Charlottenborg, 9 month old fawn Bitch who i thought was my class winner on initial look. Beautiful head, dark eye, correct detention, melting expression, long neck into well laid shoulders, stood 4 square, good angles fore and aft moved well, but was un coordinated on the walk which cost her the class today, but am sure she will develop and firm up all round. Has plenty of time. I look forward to seeing her in the future. Unlucky to meet the 1st today.

3rd. Geordieone One To Control

Junior (6, 5 Abs)

1st. McClellan's Roucandane Phoenix Rising At Anadain, 11 month old fawn bitch, demands your attention in the ring, clean,well chiseled femine head, dark eye, sweet expression, small neat alert ears used to her advantage, correct detention, long neck into well laid shoulders, deep well filled chest, held topline well both standing and moving, a little tentative at first in the walk but freed up once moving. strong rear action, lithe and free once settled in a small ring. Looked a picture in the line up and couldn't not award her BOB & BP not something I like to do but she was worthy and earned both awards. Was pleased to see her go on to take Adult Working group 2, Working Puppy Group 1 & Best Puppy In Show. Congratulations.

Graduate (1, 1Abs). Absent

Open (6, 5 Abs )

1st Young's Geordieone Maises Price Shcm, 4 1/2 year old fawn Bitch which i have previously awarded BOB. Pretty femine head, dark eye, correct detention, long strong neck into well laid shoulders, well filled chest, a little long in loin, her under carriage and topline were too soft today which showed on both the walk and move and spoiled her femin e outline. I see she is coming back into condition after a litter as I placed her progeny 2nd & 3rd in Puppy.
